Our work

Business Teams

With offices in 29 cities around the world, we offer expert legal services across a wide range of jurisdictions and best-in-class divisions, in Corporate, Finance and Projects, and Dispute Resolution. And while our lawyers tackle complex global work, so will you. Just as they're supported by colleagues around the world, you will be too.

Join one of our Business Teams and you'll play a pivotal role in our work, influencing senior lawyers and serving clients. Very simply, we offer you a highly challenging career, supported by investment in the latest processes, services and technology.

There are many compelling reasons to join the team, starting with the vision we share: by fulfilling individual potential, we will become the best-in-class law firm. You'll be central to our success, driving change, instilling best practice and providing the commercial edge we need to lead the market. But it's the caliber of your thinking that we value most. So while we set high standards, legal sector experience is not a pre-requisite. We welcome world-class professionals from different backgrounds, and we're committed to developing them with world-class development and training.

Our scope, too, is wide-ranging. Global opportunities are available in Finance, Business Management, Marketing, Human Resources, Knowledge and Learning, IT, Strategy, Legal Secretaries, Operations and Risk.

Finance and Business Management

To compete in the fast-moving legal market, we need to be more than a strong commercial business - we need to adapt quickly. We want to lead the way in how we operate commercially and financially, which is why financial best practice is always front of mind.

Our professionals are both highly valued for their advice and central to our strategy. And they're intimately involved in the running of big projects and building lasting client relationships.

Human Resources, Knowledge and Learning

A world-class HR function is paramount because our future rests on recruiting, retaining and developing the best global talent. The work is challenging and the standards exceptional. But so is the support you receive. Join us and you'll work with some of the brightest minds in HR and enjoy close access to partners and Business Teams leaders.

Our success depends on all of us sharing knowledge and resources, and HR is involved in cross-functional projects. So whether you're based in London or Lisbon, Singapore or Shanghai, you'll feel part of a global team, coming into contact with colleagues and initiatives from around the world.

Legal Secretaries

As a Legal Secretary, you'll be central to the firm, supporting our lawyers and clients. So we make sure you have everything you need to do your job properly. While challenging work is an inescapable reality at Linklaters, you'll have the support of a genuine team behind you.

When it comes to your development, we offer a curriculum of commercial awareness and skills training throughout the year. You could also take on new responsibilities, such as working with other business team functions or in a training capacity.

Marketing

Part of our vision is to be ‘best in class’, and to do this we need to be winning in our chosen markets. A marketing career at Linklaters puts you at the heart of realizing this vision.

Our client development, business development and sector management teams are fundamental to global client relationships with the world’s leading companies and financial institutions. These relationships ensure we continue to attract the most important assignments.

Of equal importance, is the firm’s reputation. Our PR, communications and events teams around the world are behind the innovative marketing that enables us to nurture that reputation. And with secondments and broad exposure to our business on offer, you'll find we place a high value on career development.

Operations

Operations provides our clients and colleagues with facilities and support services that mirror the excellent quality of our legal advice.

Roles can be demanding and cover such disciplines as Building Services and Reception. They often provide opportunities to manage third-party supply contracts and manage major one-off projects through specialist contractors.

Risk

Managing risk is essential for protecting the firm’s reputation, and ensuring Linklaters succeeds in the face of ever-changing regulations and global trends. Our Risk department has global responsibility for managing risk and has offices in London, Germany, Hong Kong and New York.

Technology (IT)

At Linklaters, we invest considerably in the careers of technology professionals, and in the technology that helps us to serve our clients and our people better. We focus on delivering mobility to facilitate flexible working, access to know-how and collaboration for each other and our clients.

Using innovation in technology creates competitive advantage for the firm ahead of our competitors whilst maintaining the security of our networks keeps everyone on their toes.

We work from a common IT platform and all our information is held centrally in four data centers. For the firm this ensures consistency, flexibility and reliability. For IT professionals, it offers global exposure. And wherever you join us, you'll be working as part of a global team, on projects that span the world.
